About Me

My photo
Hi, my name is Terri. I started crafting at an early age when my grandmothers taught me how to crochet and embroider on dish towels. Over the years I've tried many other crafting mediums, and have found my favorite in rubber stamping. My wonderful guy (Craig) supports me in everything I do........I'm very blessed!! I love learning new things and hopefully will inspire others to step out of their comfort zone and try a few new things. Thanks so much for stopping by....have a wonderful day!

Welome to Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 432!  Our theme this week is "Stenciling" and our lovely sponsor is Winnie & Walter.  I used a creative screening (stencil) called Scenery: Do You See What I See?.  The die cut "hugs" is also from Winnie & Walter.  I used Distress inks to sponge over the stencil and then added the die cut.  The flower was sponged with the same color ink and a white brad was placed in the center.  Please visit Winnie & Walter to see some really great products!  You can also visit our challenge this week to see some great inspiration from the design team members.  So glad you stopped by - have a great week!

PIP Challenge 1917

 
Welcome to PIP Challenge 1917 where our theme on this 5th Monday of April is CAS - Clean And Simple.  Our sponsor this week is Newton's Nook.  Please visit Newton's Nook to find some of the cutest images ever!!  Now, everyone knows I'm a huge Newton fan.  His antics are so sweet, and who could resist a cutie like this???  This image comes from the Newton's Kitchen set.  CAS is not always easy for me.  Keeping things one layer and with very little bling isn't as easy as it sounds!!  But I colored Newton with Copic markers and then put my sentiment in the opposite corner.  I then used a black marker to draw a frame and connect the two.  A little shading with some sponged ink and I was done.  I hope you'll join our challenge over at PIP Challenges and uplink your project for a chance to win some Newton's Nook goodies!  So glad to see you - thanks for stopping by!
